to his country as a whole right now? >> reporter: well, you know, the prime minister, they say he reacted well. the nation's in shock and he's addressing that shock. he has told his people already, stay calm, stay united, be dignified. he said also, don't be naive. this is a country now that's been attacked and is a real attack. the worst attack in this country since world war ii. so, he's uniting his country and warning them at the same time. one thing i should point out, you know, in this country, the maximum sentence for any crime here is 21 years. 21 years in jail. there is no death penalty here. 21 years in jail. so the suspect, 32 years old, if he's quicked, would face a maximum of 21 years in jail, given time or for good behavior, he could be out on the streets before he's 50 years old. >> wow. martin fletcher live in oslo. thanks. he'll continue to follow this through the day. head now to the white house where debt ceiling talks collapsed last night.
